Palm Beach Lakes’ Eddie Lovett headed to Florida on a track scholarship

  • 10:48 am Thursday, May 13th, 2010 by Post Staff

Fresh off setting a new state record in the 110 hurdles, Palm Beach Lakes senior Eddie Lovett has signed a track scholarship with the University of Florida. Lovett had been talking to the University of South Florida during the season but Florida came on strong right after the regional meet. He also had interest from Louisiana State and South Carolina.

Lovett broke the 20-year-old state record in the 110 hurdles at the Class 3A state meet last weekend in 13.46. Philip Riley of Orlando-Jones set the previous record of 13.59 in 1990. Lovett also was one of the area’s top [More]

Wind at County Track & Field Meet produces mixed results

Palm Beach Lakes WR Eddie Lovett out for regular season, DB Roderick Fields out at least one game

  • 11:05 pm Wednesday, October 7th, 2009 by Post Staff

Palm Beach Lakes is going into its game against Dwyer a little banged up. The biggest blow comes from losing senior wide receiver/defensive back Eddie Lovett for six weeks with a broken arm. Lovett came down hard after a hit against Suncoast last Friday. Lakes coach Alonzo Jefferson said the Rams were hopeful they would get Lovett back in time for the playoffs if they make it, which at this point seems fairly likely. The Rams are trying out juniors Tommy Lee Lewis, Emarkis Gunn, and Javonte Simon as replacements.

Also out is cornerback Roderick Fields with a knee injury. Fields [More]
